@Sally - email sent containing link to pictures (folder)

My youngest decided that he really didn't want to join in, so it was just his two elder siblings that had a go.

I was very surprised and proud at how well they actually did compared to my first attempts oh so many years ago.

found it, thanks!  Looking at the pictures it looks as if they had fun (and you did too) which is what it was all about!

Having worked in a grocery store for a few years, I had decided that there were really only two holidays at the time.  I named them, Hallowistmas and Eastertines Day.  Now they're blending together...Hal-istmas-ster-lentines! :blink:  A Hallmark holiday, brought to you by Cadbury.

too much time time on Facebook...i was looking for the 'like' button!

The new website allows us to apply promotional codes more easily either by

1: offerring free items with particular purchases with a preset minimum or no minimum order value

2:  It allows us to easily add Free shipping deals

3:  We can discount an order by applying a percentage reduction to the total value

4:  We can discount individual items for specific periods of time.

Also it helps because it keep a stock tally so we know what we have left instead of counting everything and finding ourselves short!

This topic will be added to with particular promotions which will run for fixed periods of time, there will be codes and freebies. Your account will only allow each code to be used once.

 I am locking it so that only we can add to it which will make it easier for you to see if i have added something new!  Current codes are highlighted in yellow!

hi Jerem,

i agree that 0.4mm for the magnetic option would be too thin, we use magnetic discs which are 0.75mm thick and hold 80g of mini per sq cm.  we have used them on all of the display figures.  we did have an issue with some we bought in pre-cut from a supplier in the US with the glue not being strong enough but so far the ones we have got from the Uk the glue seems to strengthen and get more sticky the longer they are on.  we use a metal tool box to move our stuff as well (Craig got it for us for christmas last year!)

0.4mm is the ferrous option, i tested it on some standard 25mm based figures (stuck the ferrous discs to the underside of a shelf and attached some based figures (not painted just in case!) and both the adhesive and ferrous component held fine over night, the 50mm monsters were a bit more scary but they held too.  i dont know if i would trust it on larger figures held upside down but as a way of preventing movement in a tray where the figures are upright i would say it is fine.

If you are using a lot of magnetic basing material would you consider putting some to the test for me to see how it works in your situation rather then the test settings i use here?

i did some customer research a couple of months ago as to what to add next to the magnetic basing ranges.  Some of the suggestions were unfeasible and logistically unworkable when i researched them.

We already had adhesive-backed pre-cut discs and tiles in the most popular base sizes in magnetic rubber.  I looked at what to add to this to fill a gap and 25mm hex were suggested.  Currently GaleForce 9 sell these as a pack of 25 hex bases (bases with magnets in the bottom) and a small sheet of rubber/steel (about 25cm square) for 7.50 but it was hard to find an alternate supplier in the UK.  The main issue i also had with the GF9 system was that it was best used with 'new basing' and didnt offer a way of adding a magnetic basing option to already based figures.  Litko in the US sell a good range of bases and rubber sheet to cut your own but with the threshold for customs charges lowered and the heavy weight involved it wasnt feasible to stock them in.

Excellent, thought the 'non-mummy' part of my brain.  I contacted my supplier for the discs to see what he could offer.  I had to pay for a hex tool to be cut but then it was all systems ahead.

Part of the research also pulled up a gap for a similar product but the metal component rather than magnetic so i contacted my supplier again who had a product called 'Ironflex'. It is adhesive-backed metal strip for when you have a magnetic based figures but no metal surface to attach them to. It has the ferrous component embedded in the rubber so no more sharp edges to slice your fingers with like the steel sheet.  It attracts any north or south or A and B type magnetic tapes. Its nice and thin, only 0.4mm thick so can easily be cut to size/shape with just scissors.  So i thought we would give that a try and went for the same hexagonal dimensions plus 25mm and 50mm diameter discs plus 25mm and 50m wide tape.

I have just done the images for the new codes and hope to have them online in the next 12 hours or so, i have priced them well below GF9 and as they are a trial they are at a lower price than the restock will be.  I would appreciate any feedback once you buy them to see if this area is worth developing further.

it is on the cards to get the  email notification up and running, we had to prioritise some back-end stuff to make accounting and paying the tax man easier but it is on the list

Lessons learned:

1. Research the cost of free-range poultry before ordering.

2. Save up for next year's.

3. Then get a frozen one instead.

made an expensive error then?  Wait until you go for 'Free Range Organic Fed' ... you would need a 2nd mortgage!

Aldi are selling fresh ones for 19.99

"Kev went out, so i wandered over to his workbench"

Best thing you've done all year, in my limited experience of what you have done all year!

not sure if that is a compliment or an insult.........

I'm just glad I got in shortly after Inso with buying that new smudge.
If the powers that be are listening, will there be a metal Andreah, the resin one just seems a bit out of my price range?

yes there will, we had some casting issues but fingers crossed for January.

Some items are out of stock because we have run the levels down lower than usual.  Due to the closure for the majority of this last year our cash flow is not as good as it should be and our policy has always been never to order restocks from casters unless we have the money in the bank to pay for what we have ordered so when we restock instead of stocking up for 4 months supply at a time we are doing smaller orders for maybe 2 months supply.
